Goal List - Week Commencing 13th May 2012
Blog - Two posts done.
100 Words - I wrote my contribution to the on-going story, The Phobia, here on the Phoenix Writers blog, my own effort is here Its a bit of fun, and interesting to see how all the writers involved are taking it forward. Very organic!
Novel - No progress this week.
Reading - Not really, swamped with 'real life' work.
Balance - I tried. I managed two walks, one brisk after work one, which blew away the cobwebs of a stressful day. The other a more leisurely stroll taking time to look at my surroundings. I took some pictures, and it felt good to be outside in the sunshine! Yes, the sun shone brightly. I think all the rain we are having is getting everyone down - hopefully its on the way out.
Sleep was a priority, and I did get a few earlier nights, I changed my routine around a bit, and believe if I hadn't of had such a horrendous work week I might have fared better. As it was, I achieved a few more hours - its a step in the right direction.
Extra Stuff - I think its important to add, I also met up with a fellow writer, and together, in very limited time, over a lunch-time drink, we roughed out a plan for our part in running a workshop this coming Saturday. I finalised it, and wrote it up last night, and felt a sense of achievement bringing it together.
This coming week, I'll be scaling it back. I've decided to give myself a break. This is me trying to keep the list simple then.
Novel - Just do it!
Reading - Anything.
Workshop - On Saturday, I'm jointly presenting/running a session which is part of a whole day of writing. Looking forward to a lot of laughs, and having fun!
Cake - There is little to beat tea and cake. It shall be done.
Sleep - Continue to keep my sleep diary, and find ways to relax, and rest, and even sleep! So that I feel more energised.
That is the plan. So, how did you do? What have you in mind for the next week? Is there one thing you want to focus on? Let me know in the comments box, its good to make the journey together.
